Select an online or offline environment where you already regularly participate. Your goal is to understand how group communication works and how it is experienced in this environment. This environment could be a website or forum, a gaming environment, a media sharing platform (like Youtube, Vimeo, Flickr or a specific blog), a social media site (like facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr or Twitter), a sporting team training and game, a social gathering, or any other kind of online environment that supports user participation.

Carry out participant observation ethnographic research over a 48-hour period (or as relevant so that you are involved in the research for at least two hours) and write field notes about this experience. What is important is that your field notes capture: what happened, what you learnt about your object of study (e.g. group communication in XX sport or group communication on XX social media), a reflection on what happened and on your personal experience.
